Vegan ass cheese hasn't caught up to the standards of meat substitutes.

At a commercial level, true. Homebased and craft though, false. I make a lot of vegan cheeses. Here's a vid that shows a comparable blue cheese I made a few weeks ago.

I also sell some lemon-garlic-pepper "goat cheese" to friends. It passes the vegan Turing test too.

Yeah to eat I feel like if you double the price you get something alright.

I don't know any vegan cheeses that are tasty and arent analogous to "artisenal" real cheeses in price. A lot of ingredients are just pricey as hell in bulk. Particularly cashews and mold cultures.

really? i've found the opposite. vegan cheese is the only animal product replacement I use regularly

The stuff I've found at the supermarket ranges from awful tasting to almost making me sick. I agree with OP that homemade cheese replacements are great.

This is just my experience, of course.
